For example; artist name: ‘sonicPlanet’ Project name: ‘BuzzBells’ type of the project you can rename each object when you enter the artist&project name, this list populates and automatically reads these files on your workspace directory
  12. 12. The project has 6 sound objects delivered in 3 stereo files. As you imagine, the first object will have the name “BellA” and the second will be called “BellB”. When you are done, hit this button to generate the layout and switch to the next screen. You can decide if the sound objects will be visible on the map or not.
  13. 13. GEcomposer it is important to turn on play button before switching to the editor screen otherwise you will have no sound
  14. 14. GEcomposer now position your iPhone in horizontal state to switch to the editor display your current position is shown on the map this is also the listener position.

  20. 20. GEcomposer After deleting an object, you have to insert it to its new position as the next step. ©sonicPlanet, all right reserved
  21. 21. GEcomposer if the object behavior is set to : cont : Then the object will have constant volume no matter how far it is from the listener. natural : The object volume will be inverse proportional to the distance from the listener. inv-n : The object volume will be proportional to the distance from the listener. distance c : The object volume will be zero after a certain distance set by the GPSactdistance slider. Below this distance the object volume will be inverse proportional to the distance from the listener.
  22. 22. GEcomposer this slider sets the distance threshold in meters. the dispersion slider sets how fast/slow the volume of the object decreases with the distance of the object from the listener. TIP : If you want to create an ambient sound object, keep this value low so that the object propagates its sound in a larger area homogeneously. (like the sun) TIP : If you want to create a point like sound object then keep this value high. (like the street lamp)
